Securing Workers’ Compensation Benefits For Public Safety Workers Since 1971
Public safety employees commit their lives to keeping us safe. When they suffer a serious work injury, including spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries and smoke inhalation, these workers deserve to receive full workers’ compensation benefits to help them and their families navigate this challenging period.
Since our founding more than 48 years ago, we have dedicated our practice to protecting the rights of police officers, firefighters and other safety and public sector employees who are hurt at work. At Lewis, Marenstein, Wicke, Sherwin & Lee, LLP, we strive to identify legal solutions that protect our clients’ rights and carry out justice on their behalf.
Our lawyers’ experience, work ethic and commitment to integrity has made our firm a trusted resource for public safety workers throughout Southern California. We have worked with employees from a broad range of agencies throughout the region, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the Los Angeles Fire Department, the Los Angeles Police Department, the California Highway Patrol, the Ventura County fire and sheriff departments and outlying police and fire departments. We also represent non-safety employees, both in the private and public sector, in all aspects of workers’ compensation claims and litigation.
California’s Workers’ Compensation Benefits
California’s workers’ compensation system is a “no-fault” system. This means that injured workers can receive benefits, regardless of who ultimately caused the accident. Workers who qualify for workers compensation may claim the following benefits:
- Temporary disability compensation
- Permanent disability compensation
- Medical treatment
- Job displacement allowance
Our attorneys care deeply about the well-being of our clients. We take every necessary action to answer your questions and secure an outcome that helps you get back on your feet.
